Merry Christmas!

William and I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! This is my second year taking a picture with William in the park for Christmas and I will have to say that every year it becomes more difficult! You have no idea how many outtakes and just plain bad photos it took just to get a few that were salvageable. Well, the important thing is not necessarily getting the perfect photo (although that's nice) but enjoying the moment and spending time with the ones you love, like my husband and my dog. They are definitely the ones that have made this year and the holidays so special!

William didn't like this particular trip to the park because he has a phobia of skateboards and several kids on skateboards were near the the park, which sent William into a tizzy! He spent most of the "photo shoot" whimpering and looking around, paranoid that the aforementioned skateboarders might come closer. Well, even though he didn't really calm down much, it was definitely a fun Christmas memory, or at least it is now, looking back at it! Christmas, much like blogging, is something we all want to pretend will go off seamlessly and without a hitch, but sometimes it's the imperfections that we remember most. So, on that note, I hope you have the most perfect of Christmases and if not, find the positive in the day or look at whatever went wrong and find a way to have a good laugh over it, maybe over a glass of wine...or two!

  1. I remember your shoot with him last year and loved it. I love it this year too. Such cute festive head pieces and I love your plaid flats. They are perfect for Christmas!

    Hope you had a great Christmas. Come join my monthly 'last Tuesday of the month' linkup (below) and a brand-new Thursday Moda goes live tomorrow. Thanks.

    Happy Holidays. <3 Ada.

  2. Awww....poor puppy! lol, you two are so cute in your matching headbands though. So rarely do things go according to plans, even when you're with the ones you love. But they definitely make it worth it and in the end, I usually remember the imperfect times more than I remember the perfect ones! Happy New Year!
